What are Wall Street analysts saying about Constellation Brands, Inc. Class A stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Constellation Brands, Inc. Class A stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Constellation Brands outperformed the industry in the past month, driven by its solid top-line trends. In first-quarter fiscal 2019, results reflected the 9th sales beat in last 11 quarters. Top-line beat was driven by strong depletions in the beer business, offset by softness in wine & spirits. Looking ahead, the company raised GAAP earnings view for the fiscal. Further, management continues to expect high-single digit volume growth, and issued robust guidance for the beer segment in fiscal 2019. However, its earnings missed estimates in the first quarter driven by higher marketing expenses and transportation costs that led to a decline in the operating margin. This marked an earnings miss after 14 consecutive beats. Further, the market remains concerned about the outcome of its recent $5 billion investment to expand stake in Canada’s Canopy Growth. Nevertheless, estimates have been stable lately." (9/20/2018)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We estimate interest expense will rise about $40 million per quarter and the company will not be buying back shares or doing other acquisitions until the debt returns to 3.5x EBITDA. We estimate pro forma Debt/ 2019 EBITDA to be 4.7x after this deal. Thus, in the short-term, this is quite a big negative. Our FY19 EPS estimate goes to $9.08, down from $9.60 (guidance $9.40 – $9.70). For FY20 our estimate goes to $9.65, down from $10.85. The estimate cut is driven by 1) higher interest expense; 2) higher share count since we had assumed share repurchase in the model; and 3) the lack of any meaningful benefit flowing through at the equity line as a current return on the investment."
